Summary In Dorset in 1740, after her father brings home a mysterious and defiant stallion, fifteen-year-old Helena is desperate to keep the horse for her own. Everything in helena's life is in perfect order. As the daughter of magistrate and quarry owner Lord Roseby, she has a comfortable home on a grand estate, and with the help of her best friend, Jamie the stable boy, she is secretly able to ride her father's powerful horses -- without the confines of a side saddle. Then in a single day, everything changes. A visit from the local customs officer reveals that dangerous smugglers are on the loose in Helena's quiet village. That same evening, Lord Roseby brings home a mysterious and beautiful stallion. Before Helena knows what's happened, her world is turned completely upside-down, and becomes more exciting than she ever could have imagined.
